Dino: 2-year-old male chocolate Lab 84 pounds neutered

Background: Big Dino was surrendered to a local shelter as his spirit and energy were much too bountiful for his owner. Dino was kept outside. He did live with children. We think he didn’t get many leash walks or playtime with other dogs.

What Dino’s Rescue Rep says: When I first met him at the shelter, this guy was bursting with energy and without a lot of manners. He has made great strides on manners and basic obedience over the past two weeks at a dog trainer. He is learning how to walk on leash nicely. Absolutely loves the kiddie pool – and swimming in the bay. Also enjoys fetching and chasing toys. Dino will need a solid handler that is committed to his ongoing training. Lots of exercise (and swim time?) must be on Dino’s daily schedule. Gets along great with other dogs although he is a bit overzealous upon initial meeting. Not for the faint-hearted, this guy is an absolute hoot. No idea how he is with cats. Probably too much dog for a family with small children.

Medical Information: Dino is in great health. Current on Rabies and distemper vaccination, microchipped, and neutered.

Dino is located in: El Cerrito.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
